The regulator is in the alternator. it sounds like it isn't charging the battery anymore. battery voltage should be around 14 volts with engine running. also check connections at alternator to battery. have seen corrosion here keep the battery from charging

I have a 1994 ford taurus station wagon, the battery won't stay charged, the confusing thing is that the inside panel and door light works


you have a faulty alternator by the sounds of it, try this simple test, : test the voltage of the battery with the vehicle off with a simple multimeter, it should read just over 12v then test it with the car running, it should read around 14-14.5 volts if it still only reads 12v then your alternator needs replacing.

2007 jeep wrangler died at the gas station so I got a new battery and it worked for about a week and now will not start again


You'll need to have charging circuit checked, starting with alternator output. Beforehand, be sure to check belt condition and tension for alternator.

I have a 2007 silverado i have had this problem 2 times now. I have no crank and no start, but i have power everywhere else. They replaced the battery the first time last week.


Could be a combination of things, they put in new battery but did they test charging system (Alternator) Your alternator might not be charging properly and you've been running on battery power. You've probably run the battery down so low that there's not enough power to run ignition but enough for lights etc. Jump start and bring to repair shop that you frequent and have them test your charging system.

Hi, I have 328XI Station Wagon (2007) and all of sudden I can't unlock its doors with remote nor with the unlock button (none of them). I had to use the key (that's hidden in the remote) to open the driver...


Do you keep the key in your pocket quite a bit? Most BMW's need the key to be recharged in the ignition console for a few hours every week or so. The battery will die if you don't charge it for about an hour or two once a week.

I have a 1991 Subaru Legacy Wagon. ALL the warning lights come on and go off at random. How do I fix this?


Usually when this happens the charging system is acting up. Have the alternator tested when this happens. Also check your battery cables to see if they are tight and clean.

Have the alternator tested. Both Autozone and Advance auto will do it for free. It's probably the diode.

Chrysler Sebring 2004 Convertible Bad Battery Charge Problems


I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.
